No dedicated servers for pc or ps4? Man they should of live stream all this..

Not known if exclusive to Xbox One yet. Probably not.

One of the big announcements about Xbox Gold on the X1 was Microsoft providing dedicated servers for games.
trafalger  +   778d ago
it wouldnt be exclusive, the problem is sony does not provide servers to 3rd party publishers. at least they never did in the past. call of duty used demonware on the ps3 which is why when call of duty launches on the ps3 there are more issues than we see on the x360. thats because on the x360 its handled on m$ end. activision has to guess how much demand is on the ps3 whereas m$ takes care of all that. now that m$ is going to have 300,000 servers around the globe expect that gap to increase which is why sony is now charging to play online. m$ has invested billions of dollars into their online structure.

It's not XB1 exclusive (at least I don't think so), they would be screaming it from every rooftop if it were the case. Come on people get real, expect Sony to reveal the same later during their conference.

Microsoft are openly handing Dedicated Server's to First and Third-Party developers, as to ensure the X1 Version of games have the greater online experience.
Kingthrash360  +   778d ago
I had the same thought.....I really doubt it.
Septic  +   778d ago
Yeah I doubt the PS4 version won't have dedicated servers.

I'm glad P2P is fast becoming a thing of the past now. Finally!
Blackdeath_663  +   777d ago
WTF???!!! i don't get it what is the point of Xbox one's "Advanced matchmaking" using the "power of the cloud" when most next gen games are using dedicated servers?
PtRoLLFacE  +   777d ago
lol dedicated servers are provided by the cloud moron
_FantasmA_  +   777d ago
They just say they have TrueSkill matchmaking or some BS so people will be tricked into thinking that they are getting their money's worth. I always used to get put on bad teams on Gears and Halo. True Skill my ass, more like True Lies.

"No dedicated servers for pc or ps4?"

Where does it say that?
JackStraw  +   777d ago
apparently you don't understand question marks.
B-radical  +   778d ago
It does seem alot of next gen games are going dedicated servers
gazgriff2k12  +   778d ago
dedicated servers are not a magic fix. ask pc players what they think of cod's netcode
sorane  +   777d ago
I'm a pc player and I can't remember one time since cod4 where I have experienced lag or anything in a CoD game I own. Granted I don't play the game a whole lot, but I can't remember having any problems at all.
ala_767  +   778d ago
It has on PC b4
famoussasjohn  +   777d ago
They'll probably say more stuff for servers on PC later, they usually don't have details to share until the last month or so until launch.
Kingthrash360  +   778d ago
more cod news!!!!!! sooo last year...
jokes aside dedicated severs for cod now....they are really trying to catch bf....is it just me...im really unimpressed with ghosts.....I thought with new consoles they would wow me....they didnt....bf4 for me this year...cod after
CerebralAssassin  +   777d ago
They are both launch day purchases for me. I dont need to pick. Luckily.
drsfinest72  +   778d ago
They did dedicated servers for gears and they forced you to buy a dlc for it. I bet they are going to force some sort of dlc just so you could get didicated servers
tokugawa  +   778d ago
What are you talking about????????? I dont remember anyone forcing me to buy dlcto play gears on-line

lastofgen  +   778d ago
lol what??
I never purchased dlc to have access to gears dedicated servers... what are you talking about? :/
DARK WITNESS  +   778d ago
when gears 3 launched it had Dedicated servers out the door, but also some games were played P2P, like if the servers were down or whatever.

Then they changed it so only people who downloaded a particular dlc would play on the servers and if you didn't you played P2P.

There was never a problem playing online but to get on the servers you needed the dlc basically. although if I remember right I think TD could still be played on servers , but you needed the dlc for any of the other game modes
famoussasjohn  +   777d ago
What? Could you at least attempt to troll decently?
TheKingWilliamV  +   778d ago
OMG!!! Yes dedicated servers great news Microsoft now keep up the good work at Gamescon.

(prepares flame shield)
tokugawa  +   778d ago
Dedicated servers for cod.... I will now buy this.

If this is a microsoft exclusive thing. Then they should start shouting it
AutoCad  +   778d ago
But but the cloudz was just imaginary
HolyDuck  +   778d ago
Dedicated servers has nothing to do with cloud computing.

It's just... how they're wording it to make the cloud seem more powerful.

PC's do the same thing, they use servers but cloud isn't mentioned at all.

I was baffled when they tweeted "CoD will have dedicated servers via the cloud"
magzter  +   778d ago
The cloud is simply a server, the cloud for the Xbox are Microsoft's servers (Azure). What they're saying is, CoD will have dedicated servers via Microsoft's cloud.
PtRoLLFacE  +   777d ago
my friend your living under a rock
Grap  +   777d ago
the cloud is not actually a cloud.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   778d ago
a user does realize many PS3 games have already had dedicated servers right?
TrevorPhillips  +   778d ago
It's about time
Animal Mutha 76  +   778d ago
About bloody time seeing as we pay for online.

Great news though. Now please ditch the quick scoping and tweak the lag comp so I don't get shot after I've gone into cover.
bub16  +   778d ago
that lag comp should be covered by having dedicated servers
BulletToothtony  +   777d ago
That would be awesome, I'm truly not trying to hate but I was just reading this week how a lot of PC gamers still had a lot of lag even with dedicated servers because of the way black ops 2 was made.

Either way best of luck to the xbone users can't say that I'm not jealous of this, specially if they get rid of the lag.

I can only hope things will change now that the ps4 seems to be the one console that's gonna sell the most copies of these type of games.

Either way, competition just showed us that it is still a great thing for us gamers.
DARK WITNESS  +   777d ago
I not so sure it will.

whatever they have done with lagcomp it seems to affect the network code even over Lan. Watch some of the footage from the lan games and you still see the same bullcrap going on... even though it's suppose to be on lan!

I don't know any other game that plays like this but I will be keeping my eye on this closely, but not getting my hopes up.

what it will cut out is host dashboarding and all of that sort of stuff.

I'm going to get hate for this, but dedicated servers on COD doesn't help much. If you play COD on PC with dedicated servers, you'll notice that the same lag issues still occur as if you were playing on console. COD is just really screwed up like that lol, other games using dedicated servers are miles better though.

Did not know this however lag cop historically has been worse on Treyarch produced COD's. Infinity Ward always had better lag comp thats why people die in MW2, MW4 and COD 4 the original
sorane  +   777d ago
I've never had a lag problem on PC. Think I own 4 of em since cod4 and can't remember one instance. I don't play CoD a whole lot though......
Biohazard8860  +   778d ago
If this is only for xbox one that is no fair to the PS4 Wii U and PC buyers if this is true looks like i am not supporting this.
GodGinrai  +   778d ago
To be fair those are MS own servers not Acti/IW. Sony will have to provide those servers themselves...just like MS did.
HolyDuck  +   778d ago
To be fair though, the amount of cash Activision makes the least they could do is fork some out for PC/PS4/PS3/360 dedi servers.

Only reason they are dedi for Xbox One is because Acti isn't having to pay for them as MS is.
Biohazard8860  +   778d ago
Oh i see thanks for clearing that up.
vigilante_man  +   778d ago
I agree. I hate exclusives on all sides. Just release the same game to all gamers. Shows greed and a lack of respect for their customers.

And Cod sells millions so they could afford to offer dedicated servers themselves!
JunioRS101  +   778d ago
"Although it should be noted that the PlayStation 4 may offer the same dedicated servers, as Microsoft have not confirmed this to be exclusive"

Hope PS4 has it too.
HolyDuck  +   778d ago
Agreed, all this server migration during my couple of games a week on CoD is destroying it for me, I'd love to just play a small session of uninterrupted CoD
Niv  +   778d ago
Sony have Gaikai ! Jus have to use those servers :)
#13 (Edited 778d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(11) | Report | Reply
Kemistri  +   777d ago
From my understanding that's exactly what they're going to do.

Sadly I don't have the links but from what I have read there have been some changes to the Gaikai service from just a streaming service to a full blow dedicated server service - hosting games, matchmaking, etc.

I could be wrong however.
ape007  +   778d ago
Cloud is REAL people

now i will buy CoD on xbox one, if this trend continued, X1 will be my Main System

but i must get ps4 for KZ, GOW, ND and MGS V

i know mgs will be on X1 but it feels better on ps4, placebo effect?

This would be a suicide move by activision... There is no way they keep dedicated servers only on the xbone

Not really. activision are not the ones providing the dedicated servers. MS are.
cr33ping_death  +   778d ago
Ahhh... If thats the case i retract my former comment
Donnyskillz  +   778d ago
i dont understand why they keep on bypassing that fact. LISTEN UP AGAIN(MICROSOFT IS SUPPLYING THE SERVERS NOT ACTIVISION) ....somebody is gonna come right behind me and say ...activision is gonna kill themselves if they do give the servers to microsoft and not sony.....SMDH
jensen86  +   778d ago
i reckon ps4 will get dedicated servers jus ms are payin any one jus to try make there console sound a bit better. jus so they even remotely stand a chance in this gens console war cos theyv not got a years head start this time round. or a competitive price or any trust in there company for that matter
PFFT  +   777d ago
Actually no. This is mainly thanks to MS and their Servers. MS did say that the Xbox One crew would have access to 300K servers. If you want to blame anyone blame Sony for not having hardly enough server access for you to play in.
jensen86  +   777d ago
its not said any where were not gettin it. its jus like ms to try make it sound like there shits exclusive lol
PFFT  +   777d ago
Till Sony says otherwise it is exclusive.
I didnt Dislike by the way. Anyways cant wait for the Sony conference. Let see what they have in store for the future of the PS4.

Master-H  +   777d ago
Cool, i hope they announce dedicated servers for all versions. even current gen, because then i might get it on ps3
Brix90  +   777d ago
I'm not going to buy this if no dedicated servers for PS4 just can't buy into this if its not gona be the same experience.
N4GJD  +   777d ago
Dedicated Servers won't make any difference. You will continue to see 'lag compensation' techniques extensively used and will continue to experience the same bullshit. Just go play any recent multiplayer game with dedicated servers in the 'cloud' such as Gears of War 3 or Judgement, or even Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on PC, and you'll see that players with laggy connections dominate (most of which are from mexico, or overseas).
_FantasmA_  +   777d ago
Its the same game on both systems. I never noticed a difference last gen. M$ is all smoke and mirrors and people eat up their lies like Doritos. COD is still a broken game, and no 300 servers are going to make it balanced.
quenomamen  +   777d ago
Thank you, thank you for admitting that Call It Doodie has been and will continue to be busted on 360, PS3, and PS4. Thank you for telling anybody planning to buy this turd of a game on those systems that you gladly took their money in the past and will gladly continue to do so and only offer something that plenty of other games already offer no matter what system you play on. Hey kids want a lag free experience in Call It Doodie this year ? Well be sure to go out and spend $500 or guess what ? We cant help ya ! Thanks for proving once again that its all about money Activision, MS.
